Claudio Ranieri hints winger may return to Leicester starting XI for West Ham match

Claudio Ranieri says Riyad Mahrez could return to the Leicester City starting XI when West Ham United visit the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

Mahrez was on the bench for the home defeat by Everton last time out after Ranieri felt the winger was tired.

“I watched him during the training session last week and he was a little tired," Ranieri told "He worked so hard 10 men verses 11 at Stoke.

“I decided to give him a little rest and I want to see his reaction now he feels better. I am waiting for a very good reaction."
